Scottish place-name

Skye Origin and Meaning

The name Skye is both a boy's name and a girl's name of Scottish origin.
The e-addition takes the name from slightly hippie-ish nature name to the place name of a picturesque island off the coast of Scotland, and for baby namers it's by far the more popular spelling.

Skye entered the girls' list in 1987, a year after the introduction of Skye Chandler, a popular character on no fewer than three soaps—All My Children, One Life to Live, and General Hospital—for decades.

A lovely middle-name choice.
